Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We have come to the end of this particular 33 Days of preparing for our Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary, (or re-consecration) . Although the Feast of the Annunciation will be celebrated liturgically on Apr. 6, since tomorrow begins Holy week, some of us have chosen to keep the date of Mar. 25. It seems so fitting to me, personally, to reconsecrate myself and remain with Mary during these solemn days. Today is Palm Sunday, and so we need to keep our eyes on Jesus as He enters Jerusalem. If I have learned anything in this last week of preparation, in which we have been seeking "Knowledge of Christ", it is that I have so much more to learn! May the Holy Spirit and Our Lady enable us to remain in Him, growing more and more like Him every day of our lives here on earth until we meet Him Face to face in heaven. Among the suggested readings for today is this from True Devotion:
265. Finally, we must do everything for Mary. We take Mary for our proximate end, our mysterious intermediary and the easiest way of reaching him. Relying on her protection, we should undertake and carry out great things for our noble Queen. We must defend her privileges when they are questioned and uphold her good name when it is under attack. We must attract everyone, if possible, to her service and to this true and sound devotion. As a reward for these little services, we should expect nothing in return save the honour of belonging to such a lovable Queen and the joy of being united through her to Jesus, her Son, by a bond that is indissoluble in time and in eternity.
